Description


The Make Believer Project


The young women of Stardale present The Make Believer Project. The performance piece, co-written by acclaimed playwright Eugene Stickland, directed by Helen Young of Urban Stories Theatre and accompanied by a video art piece co-created with Metis artist Jessie Short, it’s a rare chance for audiences to hear the truth of what it is to be young, urban, Indigenous and female.


Contemporary Calgary partnered with Stardale Women's Group to provide an artist mentorship with Jessie Short, a curator, writer, and multi-disciplinary artist and emerging filmmaker. Jessie and videographer Noel Bégin worked with the girls of Stardale over the month of April to create a video art piece which will be screened as part of The Make Believer Project performance.


Stardale Women's Group has 21 years experience working in violence and abuse prevention with Indigenous girls aged is 10 -17 years. Their prevention model is based on teaching life skills, literacy and creative expression. To learn more please visit www.stardale.org
